It is no surprise that fresh, local seafood is a specialty at Zota Beach Resort, whether you are at the all-day Viento Kitchen & Bar or the casual Cascades pool bar. If you would like to dine in the privacy of your own balcony, room service is available throughout the day.
Viento Kitchen & Bar – Executive Chef Jason Pellet leads the team at this chic, airy restaurant with dark-wood walls, cream leather seats, a floating wall of wine bottles, and sea views. The menu is filled with fresh “Floribbean” cuisine — a delicious blend of Floridian, Caribbean, and Mediterranean flavors. Start with a breakfast of Florentine Benedict on the terrace, and return in the evening for seared sea scallops and a creamy risotto.
Cascades Pool Bar – Grab a seat at Cascades Pool Bar to lunch on Beer Can Island fish tacos or Maine lobster sliders. Later, have ice-cold craft beers or fruity Cuban Punch cocktails delivered right to your sun lounger.
At Zota Beach Resort, one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches is steps away. Stroll along the soft, white sand and dive into the calm, turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico. Choose a lounger gazing out at the gentle waves or recline by the sparkling infinity-edge pool. The Zota Zen Lounges — the resort’s private poolside spaces — are the ultimate hang out with fridges to keep drinks cold and a big screen TV. Start every morning in the light-filled 24-hour gym, which overlooks the ocean, or with coffee on your balcony.
Outside the resort, spend an afternoon fishing or kayaking, or play a round of golf at one of the nearby golf courses. Browse the boutique stores of St. Armands Circle in Sarasota, or to the Ringling Circus Museum — The Ringling art museum and stunning Ca’ D’Zan mansion is on the same property. You can also head an hour away to Busch Gardens in Tampa for a fun family theme-park day.
